FROM the highs of an emphatic midweek win came the frustration of a disappointing weekend defeat for Overton United as they missed the chance to climb the Hampshire Premier Division Senior Division table.

United hosted Colden Common last Wednesday, when they came away victorious with an impressive 5-2 display.

The hosts took a commanding 4-1 lead into half-time with Ross Cook getting himself a first half hat-trick and Ben Dillion adding a fourth. Even though United were reduced to 10-men in the second period, Cook managed to bag himself a fourth making sure the three points went back to Overton.

However, the euphoria was short lived after what joint-manager Carl Clayton described as the team's ‘worst performance of the season’ against Sway.

An early goal from Cook gave the Bridge Street team the lead, but this was cancelled out by Ryan Brading.

Cook bagged himself a second after the interval, but Brading rounded off his hat-trick in the 84 and 86 minute respectively to snatch victory away from Overton.

“We just never really go going throughout the whole 90 minutes,” Clayton said.

“If I am being brutally honest I think the score line flattered us as it was the worst performance we have had this season.

“We had a great opportunity to climb the table as we were the only league match that day but we didn’t take advantage of it.”

Overton will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they travel to Liss on Saturday.

After a great result against Verwood last week, Whitchurch United suffered two defeats this week, leaving the Jam Boys in 14th in the table of the Wessex League Division One table.

A crushing 4-0 victory at home to Alton on Saturday, 9, September was followed up by a swift exit of the Sydenhams League Cup losing narrowing 3-2 on the road away to Shaftesbury.

Goals from Luke Neller and Jack Ormiston were not enough for the visitors to go on a cup run.
